The book, My Full Moon is Square is about a frog that enjoys reading under the light of the moon, but when the moon is blocked by clouds the fireflies help the frog light up his night in order for him to read. This book is wonderful to use on a math lesson regarding multiplication and the use of arrays. Students will be able to count the number of rows and columns the fireflies make and us their own manipulatives to make their arrays along with the fireflies. This lesson could be used with students in second to third grade. I could also use this book in a lesson on science and teach student about the habitats of the characters in the story such as frogs and fireflies. A lesson on the food chain could also be taught, because it hints on the fireflies being afraid to be eaten by the frog.
